Been here before. I think the service is great. The views are great . I had a blackened tuna salad. It was wonderful. The she crab soup is one of the best around. Had a party of 5 for lunch and was in and out within an hour and 10 minutes, They have valet parking which is nice.

Watermans has a great location to enjoy the oceanfront and is just. Bike ride away. There are 3 bars here to serve you! The outside is the busiest by far and you have to love the Orange Crush's. Locals enjoy this restaurant year round.

After a long day at the Neptune Festival, last stop was Waterman's. Had to wait a short time, about 15 - 20 minutes but had a great table next to the Board Walk. Started out with Two Orange Crushes which are made by squeezing real oranges. Quite refreshing...We ordered two more. Blackened Tuna was very good, the She Crab soup... More

We come to Virginia Beach 3 - 4 times a year, and we always make sure we can fit a visit to Watermans into our stay, sometimes more than once! Food is always fresh, service is always with a smile! If anything isn't right, they will fix it right away... Crab Dip, Crab Cakes, and tuna are all awesome!

One of the beat seafood dinners I've had in a long time. Stopped in on a cool September night without reservations. We were seated within 5 minutes. Waitress was at our table within seconds reciting the specials and tending to our drink orders. The side Caesar salad was served in a chilled bowl and was surprisingly good. I ordered crab... More

Great views, excellent service and an amazing chef to create very well presented seafood dishes. This was our second visit in a year and nothing has changed which is uncommon to many establishments. We will be back!!

Great view right on the beach. We were going to eat outside but it was too windy for us. Food was a little pricey. I had the fried shrimp it was very good. The others in my party enjoyed their food also.

We saw this restaurant while dining nearby. We came back to eat lunch because the location was so scenic and the food was reputed to be very good. We agree with the assessment even though we enjoyed seafood sandwiches. Great place to sit and enjoy the weather while enjoying a very nice meal.

First the good, service was fast and friendly, nice sitting outside with an ocean view. We aren't big drinkers but we ordered the orange crush, very refreshing. The hushpuppies were very good. I ordered the seafood platter with broiled scallops, shrimp, crab and a lobster tail. Hubby ordered the crab stuffed flounder. The only seafood that was good on my... More
